Boils are round, red, painful, pus-filled bumps on the skin that are caused by a bacteria infection. When a staphylococcus aureus (staph) infection infects a hair follicle it develops deep in the root of the follicle and works its way to the skin's surface, forming a boil. Most people will notice mild pain, itching, and swelling at first. Usually within a day the boil becomes red and begins to fill with puss and becomes increasingly painful.

When a boil first begins to develop, it is small, red, and tender. After a few days the boil begins to collect pus, which is actually a mass of white blood cells that your body's immune system has sent to fight the infection. The center of the boil begins to take on a whitish color.

Skin boils are very common and usually appear on the scalp, face, underarms or buttocks. Although most people with boils are otherwise healthy, there can be several reasons why you have developed a boil. Reasons your body was too weak to fight the staph infection before it formed a boil include stress, illness, decreased immunity, toxicity, allergy, poor nutrition, diabetes or thyroid imbalance. Very rarely is a boil caused by poor hygiene. In fact, if you are susceptible, you can develop a boil no matter how hygienic you may be.

Boils are exceptionally contagious. If the pus leaks from the boil it can spread to nearby skin and cause more boils to form. Pus can also enter the blood stream and spread the infection to other parts of the body. Multiple boils are called carbuncles. Carbuncles, on top of being extremely painful, usually require medical attention. This is why it is exceedingly important to heal a boil as soon as it appears; not only will proper handling prevent a boil from spreading or becoming worse, it can also help your body fight the infection quicker and end your suffering faster.

Boils can be extraordinarily painful. When a boil develops the pain and discomfort can make your life miserable. It becomes difficult to concentrate on little else but the pain, its torture to have anything touch the boil - especially clothing, and it is painful to participate in activities you usually enjoy. Boils can negatively affect every aspect of your life and it is important to solve the problem as soon as it develops.

Your first step is to disinfect the area of the boil to prevent the infection from spreading. Use a good anti-bacterial soap and a disposable cloth. Baby wipes are great for this.

The second step is to boost your immune system to fight against future breakouts.

And finally, you will want to detoxify your body to promote skin tissue repair and healing.
